AsiaBerlin Delegation Trips are back! The first one is to India from 28 May till 6 June 2022, focusing on Urban Mobility
Fun Fact: Germany is India’s second-largest development partner, with a total volume of almost EUR 10 bn and about 170 programs. More than 1600 Indo-German collaborations and over 600 Indo-German Joint Ventures are in operation. Keeping these Indo-German relationships in mind and AsiaBerlin’s strong focus on India, we are kicking off our first delegation trip after two years to India from 28 May to 6 June 2022. The cohort of 12 startups will be visiting prominent ecosystem players in Bangalore and Hyderabad.
VOICES OF OUR COMMUNITY
“I think AsiaBerlin is a unique platform that leverages the “Power of Clusters” of Berlin and connects it with an ascendant Asia which is a playfield of opportunities. There is a tremendous opportunity for the AsiaBerlin community to champion ventures that focus on solutions for human-social systems that are in harmony with the natural order by bringing together technology and principles of good design.”Nav QirtiPrincipal, Ideactio
“I was inspired by AsiaBerlin’s vision and its welcoming community immediately. In this exponentially growing decentralized world, becoming a global key node/hub is imperative. AsiaBerlin is the strategic platform to make it possible, and the community is filled with inspiring, open-minded, engaging people! I am really grateful to be a key part of the community and be able to contribute to building the ecosystem between Japan and Berlin as an AsiaBerlin Ambassador.”Chika YamamotoAsiaBerlin Ambassador and Founder of Crossbie
“As a venture capitalist, I am excited to live in a city (Berlin) where I believe the future is being created. I am motivated to contribute to the AsiaBerlin community and program because it seeks to create more bridges for ideas, talent, and capital to move across the fast-growing tech hub of Berlin and the fastest growing digital markets in the world in Asia. From that standpoint, I would describe what Berlin is doing as ‘scaling serendipity.”Miguel EncarnacionManaging Partner, Unifier Ventures
